* “After my husband’s death FCN supported me and brought in further help from RABI and the ARC-Addington Fund. They are all brilliant and without them I would not be here.”

* “I didn’t know there was anyone out there who could help us. It is so nice to know that there is and that they care.”

* “When we got in touch we did not know which way to turn. You have been such a wonderful help to our family, thank you very much. We hope that farmers in the same position we were get in touch so they can be helped too.”

* “I think it would have totally destroyed us if we had had to go through these last few months without the help and support of the charities…we are less stressed than we have been in years and beginning to think that we have a happier future ahead of us…a huge big thank you!”
